During the month of March, the fifth grade studied different biomes with Mrs. Racine in science class. A biome is a place where a variety of different species live. Students are learning that there are many different biomes in the world.
Groups of students in each 5th grade class painted a few of the many biomes in the world. Some examples of chosen biomes were freshwater lake, estuary, savanna, and river. With Mrs. Pettibon's help in the art room, groups drew and planned out a biome scene. Next students painted the biome scene on a huge oval piece of paper. The final products are finished, and they look great! A big thanks to Mrs. Pettibon for her help.
